    Coquette is a delicious restaurant; the food is always spot on. This was my second visit and the service was just not the same. Our server forgot about our table often and when we asked questions regarding the menu, he was overall clueless (for instance, the lamb special was 8-14 oz, he wasn’t sure?). Our drink orders took about twenty-five minutes and we had to ask three separate times for 2 extra wine glasses to accommodate our table of 6. The food helped the service, but disappointed in the service considering the price range of this restaurant.

    My one word review: brutal. Extremely slow service from the moment we first sat down, where we were ignored for about 15 minutes until I flagged down a harried server, until the presentation of the bill. A round of drinks, appetizers, and mains (no dessert) took more than two and a half hours. They comped one entree because it was so poorly prepared. Food was otherwise fine, though a bit cold by the time it arrived. The restaurant is beautiful, but they really need to rethink the approach to service, especially on a busy night, as in: use expediters to get the food from the kitchen to the table and have a dedicated runner or two taking drinks from the bar to the tables.

    Nice place, food was well prepared and service was great. Our waiter was attentive but not hovering. He gave us space to eat and converse with our friends. Too often we get wait staff jumping in and interrupts the conversation. Had the charcuterie board with Jambon, Truffle Salami, Fourme d'ambert cheese and Comte. We tried the Mussels and Roasted Chicken for our main with Salads de Roquefort. Overall, everything felt fresh and infused with flavor. Enjoyed it and will visit again.

    Wonderful experience all the way around from the food, service and ambiance, it was simply exceptional. The escargot was delicious and savory wrapped in a perfectly prepared buttery croissant. The Coq au Vin Blanc chicken was moist and full of flavor. We paired our main dish with the Champignon à l'ail mushrooms which were incredible. Our friends enjoyed the Lamb special in which they stated it was the best lamb they had ever had. We were especially impressed with the staff, you can tell from the moment you walk in everyone has been well trained from the hostess, bartender and our especially our server; she was was exceptionally knowledgeable about the food and wine, professional and attentive! Overall a 10 out of 10!!

    We went to brunch on Sunday. We were there when it opened. Our server told us they were out of pastries and fries. Not sure how a French restaurant is out of those two things first thing on Sunday. The food was just ok. The croque madame lacked flavor and the omelette was average.

    I had high expectations since I only saw 5 star reviews. The inside was decorated very beautifully with comfy chairs. They were out of the two main dishes we wanted, the duck and the whole trout so we just had small plates. I had a coco channel cocktail which was delish. The shredded brussel sprout salad was also delish. The snails and the bone marrow was not as tasty. Snails were wrapped in croissant and the marrow was weirdly smoked flavored. Oysters were ok, they did not look fresh shucked. Dessert was an apple tarte that was to die for. Expresso martini was ok. Service was not as attentive for the money and the type of restaurant. I would reccomend but I will not go back. We spent for two, $200 before tip.

    Enjoyed a delightful lunch at Coquette located on Tryon St in Uptown. The restaurant is a very special place. Food was really excellent and decor was quite elegant right through to the restrooms! Initially service was a little quick, but once the Maître d realized we wanted to enjoy a leisurely European dining experience they were all in! Maître d Michelle is thoroughly engaging, knowledgeable and professional - Coquette is lucky to have her!

    First time at this restaurant! Nicely decorated and super nice bar area and service. Had an 8pm reservation but did not get seated until 8:35pm or so after being told we were next but watched 4 other groups get seated. Not sure if this just poor timing or an issue at the reservation stand. Gabriel served us and his service was impeccable. Great food - bread service, potato croquettes, mussels and halibut entrees were excellent. Also had the cauliflower appetizer which was good but not as compared to the other items on the menu - personal choice. Dessert was the Chocolate Bonchon and coffee which were delicious! The only issue was that the chairs for our table were from the outside patio and not like the other and more comfortable chairs the other tables had. Will be back to try the rest of the menu!

    I thought Coquette was a hidden gem but last night it was pretty busy. It's a great spot to meet for a special occasion. Our food was great (don't miss the fried cauliflower) and our server, Sawyer, was as well. Don't miss this one.

    I took 4 family members to celebrate a birthday. All I can say is "We were all very disappointed". The service was very good, but the noise was so loud none of us could carry on a conversation. We spent the whole time yelling across the table to one another to be heard and then we had to repeat what we had said. Food was just "so-so" and was overpriced. We won't go back.

    This restaurant exceeded our expectations. It’s visually stunning, the food is absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The wine selections were fantastic. The desserts scrumptious. Our server was professional, friendly and extremely helpful. I think his name was Garbriel. We loved everything and cannot wait to return. The chef is incredible! Also, our server explained that many of the dishes are shareable. Since we were going to a performance at the Knight Theatre, we wondered about dining on a huge dinner with wine. With his suggestions we shared a fabulous scallop and filet dinner special. It was perfect! Thank you Coquette.

    I took a friend to lunch here because I had been to Coquette a couple of months ago and had a Roquefort Romaine salad that was loaded with Roquefort cheese and was delicious. Yesterday I ordered the same dish and had a salad with good romaine and a tiny touch of Roquefort and some other graded cheese on it. What happened? Are you now cutting back on the dishes that originally attracted us to want to eat at Coquette?

    Food was good but the service fell short of my expectations. We booked it for my wife’s birthday celebration. Expecting that they would at least provide her a surprise dessert, treat or greetings… we did not get any. Funny enough the table next to us were also celebrating someone’s birthday and they did sing for them, candles, small dessert, etc. For this, the place left a bad taste in my mouth despite splurging on a couple bottles of champagne.

    Overall the decor and service were incredible and felt true to a French cafe! However the food tried to be just as dressed up but lacked cohesion and was a bit of a miss on flavor! Sometimes simplicity in food outweighs the need to be overly creative!
